Friendship Songs

Circle Of Friends
© Point of Grace

Verse 1
We were made to love and be loved
But the price this world demands
Would cost us far too much
I spent so many lonely years just trying to fit in
Now I've found my place in this circle of friends


CHORUS
In a circle of friends
We have one Father
In a circle of friends
We share this prayer
That ever orphaned soul will know
And all will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends


Verse 2
If you weep, I will weep with you
If you sing for joy the rest of us
Will lift our voices too
But no matter what you feel inside there's no need to pretend
That's the way it is in this circle of friends


CHORUS
In a circle of friends
We have one Father
In a circle of friends
We share this prayer
That we'll gather together no matter how the highway bends
I will not lose this circle of friends


Verse 3
Among the nations tribes and tongues we have sisters & brothers
And when we meet in Heaven
We will recognize each other
With joy so deep, and love so sweet
We'll celebrate these friends, and the life that never ends


CHORUS
In a circle of friends
We have one Father
In a circle of friends
We share this prayer
That ever orphaned soul will know
And all will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends


Crash and Burn
© Savage Garden

When you feel all alone,
And the world has turned its back on you,
Give me a moment please,
To Tame your wild wild heart,
I know it feels like the walls are closing in on you,
It's hard to find relief,
And people can be so cruel,
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore,

Chorus:-
Let me be the one you call,
If you jump i'll break your fall,
Lift you up and fly away into the night.
If you need to fall apart,
I can mend a broken heart,
If you need to crash then crash and burn,
You're not alone.


When you feel all alone,
And a loyal friend is hard to find,
You're caught in a one-way street,
With the monsters in your head.
Whe hopes and dreams are far away,
And you feel like you cant face the day.

Chorus

Because there has always been heartache and pain,
And when its over you'll breathe again.
You'll breathe again.


When you feel all alone,
And the world has turned it back on you,
Give me a moment please,
To tame your wild wild heart.

Chorus.

Ever Lonely
© Hanson

Well if you're ever lonely you can call on me
and I'll be here for you all you've got to do is call
said I'm always waiting here for you all you've got to do
is keep on trying till your call gets through


And for so many years I have been your friend
we've been through everything time and time again
but I want you to know that I still believe in you
all you've got to do is keep on trying till your call gets through


Well if you're ever lonely you can call on me
and I'll be here for you all you've got to do is call
said I'm always waiting here for you all you've got to do
is keep on trying till your call gets through


You got to keep trying even though the road gets hard
you got to keep going on even though he broke your heart
and if you ever need a friend I will be here for you
all you've got to do is keep on trying till your call gets through

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "never"
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not to long to live as friends

With the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you'll live in
Is the strength that now you show

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say "never"
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not to long to live as friends

Verse 1:
What are friends,
I've often wondered.
Friends have come,
And Friends have gone.
Seldom do I hear their voices,
Like old forgotten songs.
I've walked a thousand lonely miles,
And often wondered, "What went wrong?"
But I've got to make you see;
A friend to you I'll always be.
A friend to you I'll always be.


Verse 2:
A friend is not a thing to trade,
Not to bo bought, nor to be sold;
Not the ring upon your fingers.
It's not the bills which you fold,
Not the coins your pocket holds.
A friend is young, A friend is old.
And I've got to make you see,
A friend is true, a friend is free;
A friend to you I'll always be.
A friend to you I'll always be.










Verse 3:
A friend is not the fancy car,
In which you ride around.
A friend is not the little pill,
That makes you head spin round and round.
A friend is not the needle,
That creates the clouds,
On which you fly.
It's not the smoke that makes you high,
But a hand that's always by,
To wipe the tears from your eyes,
Should the world make you cry.
And I've got to make you see,
Our friendship grows like a tree;
A friend to you I'll always be.
A friend to you I'll always be.


Verse 4:
What are friends,
I've often wondered,
Now you've disappeared,
Fading into the collection,
Of songs I seldom hear,
I'll walk another lonely mile,
And let the tears fall like the rain,
â?~Till another calls me friend,
Then I'll say these words again;
A friend to you, I'll always be.
A friend to you I'll always be.

Verse 1
You say you want to be friends
That's a newly sharpened blade
That's a dagger to the heart
Of the promises we've made
That's a chapter full of pain
A season full of rain
A dark and stormy night
Spent all alone


CHORUS
Friends get scattered by the wind
Tossed upon the waves
Lost for years on end
Friends slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you now and then
But you want to be
Just friends


Verse 2
You say you love me very much
And you'll always hold me dear
Those are the sweetest words
I never want to hear
What's a love without desire
A flame without a fire
Can't warm me late at night
When I need you most


CHORUS
Friends get scattered by the wind
Tossed upon the waves
Lost for years on end
Friends slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you now and then
But you want to be
Just friends


CHORUS
Friends get scattered by the wind
Tossed upon the waves
Lost for years on end
Friends slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you now and then
Darlin' can't you see
This is killing me
We could never be
Just friends

Goodbye My Friend

Listen little child there will come a day
when you will be able, able to say, nevermind the pain,

Look for the rainbow in every storm,
Fly like an angel heaven sent to me

Find out for certain love is gonna be there for you,
You'll always be someone's baby
Goodbye my friend,

Graduation (Friends Forever)
© Vitamin C

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of that night in June
I didn't know much of love
But it came too soon
And there was me and you
And then we got real cool
Stay at home talking on the telephone with me
We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared
Laughing at our selves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

1 - As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back now
Will our jokes still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can we ever find a job that won't interfere with a tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
And this is how it feels

Repeat 1

La, la, la, la…
Yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la…
We will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there?
Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly


Repeat 1 (3x)

Heres To The Night
© Eve 6

So denied so I lied are you the now or never kind
In a day and a day love I'm gonna be gone for good again
Are you willing to be had are you cool with just tonight
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well


Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon


Put your name on the line along with place and time
Wanna stay not to go I wanna ditch the logical
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well


Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon


All my time is froze in motion
Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Don't let me let you go
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well


Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

I'll Back You Up
© Dave Matthews Band

I remember thinking
I'll go on forever only knowing
I'll see you again
But I know
The touch of you is so hard to remember
But like that touch I know no other
And for sure we have danced
In the risk of each other
Would like to dance
Around the world with me


I'll be falling all about my own thing
And I know your the heaviest weight
When your not here that's hung
Around my head


And your lips burn wild
Thrown from the face of a child
And in your eyes
The seeing of the greatest few
Do what you will, always
Walk where you like, your steps
Do as you please, I'll back you up


I remember thinking
Sometimes we walk
Sometimes we run away
But I know
No matter how fast we are running
Somehow we keep
You'll be here
Somehow we keep with each other


I'll be falling all about my own thing
And I know your the heaviest weight
When your not here that's hung
Around my head


And your lips burn wild
Thrown from the face of a child
And in your eyes
THe seeing of the greatest few
Do what you will, always
Walk where you like, your steps
Do as you please, I'll back you up


I'll Be There For You
© The Rembrandts
- theme to the TV show "Friends"

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your jobs a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year
but..

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

You're still in bed at ten
And work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast
So far... things are goin' great

Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
Oh but she didn't tell you when the world has brought
You down to your knees that...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

No one could ever know me
Seems you're the only one who knows
What it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with
Even at my worst I'm best with you, yeah

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...


I'll Be

When darkness falls upon your heart and soul
I`ll be the light that shines for you
When you forget how beautiful you are
I`ll be there to remind you
When you can`t find your way
I`ll find my way to you
When troubles come around
I will come to you


Chorus:
I`ll be your shoulder
When you need someone to lean on
Be your shelter
when you need someone to see you through
I`ll be there to carry you
I`ll be there
I`ll be the rock that will be strong for you
The one that will hold on to you
When you feel that rain falling down
When there`s no body else around
I`ll be


And when you`re there with no one there to hold
I`ll be the arms that reach for you
And when you feel your faith is running low
I`ll be there to believe in you
When all you find are lies
I`ll be the truth you need
When you need someone to run to
You can run to me


Chorus

I`ll be the sun
When your heart`s filled with rain
I`ll be the one
To chase the rain away


I'll Be There

You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love
I'll be there


I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name
And I'll be there


Chorus:

I'll be there to comfort you
I'll build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad I found you
I'll be there with a love so strong
I'll be your strength
You know I'll keep holding on


Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness well it's all I'm after
Just call my name
And I'll be there


I'll be there to protect you
With an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name
And I'll be there


Chorus:

If you should ever find someone new
I know she better be good to you
'Cause if she doesn't
Then I'll be there


Don't you know baby
I'll be there
I'll be there
Just call my name
And I'll be there


I'll be there baby
You know I'll be there
Just call my name
And I'll be there


Just look over your shoulder
Just call my name
And I'll be there


I'll remember

Mmmm, mmmm
Say good-bye to not knowing when
The truth in my whole life began
Say good-bye to not knowing how to cry
You taught me that


Chorus (first time substitute "strength" for "love" and "saved" for "changed"):


And I'll remember the love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember the way that you changed me
I'll remember


Inside I was a child
That could not mend a broken wing
Outside I looked for a way
To teach my heart to sing



(chorus)

I learned to let go of the illusion that we can possess
I learned to let go, I travel in stillness
And I'll remember happiness
I'll remember [I'll remember]
Mmmmm... [I'll remember]
Mmmmm...

(chorus)
[I'll remember]


No I've never been afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why
I'll remember [I'll remember]
(repeat 3 times, substituting "And" for "Now" the second and third times)


I'll Stand By You

Oh, why you look so sad? Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now.
Don't be ashamed to cry, let me see you through
Cause I've seen the dark side too.
When the night falls on you, you don't know what to do,
Nothing you confess could make me love you less
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.

So, if you're mad get mad, don't hold it all inside,
Come on and talk to me now.
And hey, what you got to hide? I get angry too
But I'm alot like you.
When you're standing at the crossroads, don't know which path to choose,
Let me come along, cause even if your wrong
I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you,
I'll stand by you.
Take me into your darkest hour, and I'll never desert you.
I'll stand by you.

And when, when the night falls on you baby, you're feeling all alone,
You won't be on your own, I'll stand by you. I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you, won't let nobody hurt you. I'll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour and I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you.


I turn to You

When I'm lost in the rain
In your eyes I know
I'll find the light to light my way
And when i'm scared, losing ground
When my world is going crazy
You can turn it all around and when i'm down you're there
Pushing me to the top
You're always there, giving me all you've got


Chorus:
For a shield from the storm
For a friend
For a love to keep me safe and warm
I turn to you
For the strength to be strong
For the will to carry on
For everything you do
For everything that's true
I turn to you


When i lose the will to win
I just reach for you
And i can reach the sky again
I can do anything
'Cause your love is so amazing
'Cause your love inspires me
And when i need a friend
You're always on my side
Giving me faith, taking me through the night


Chorus


I Will Come To You

When you have no light to guide you
And no one to walk beside you
I will come to you
Oh, I will come to you
When the night is dark and stormy
You won't have to reach out for me
I will come to you
Oh, I will come to you
Sometimes when all your dreams may have seen better days
And you don't know how or why, but you've lost your way
Have no fear when your tears are falling
I will hear your spirit callin'
And I swear that I'll be there come what may


repeat chorus


'Cause even if we can't be together
We'll be friends now and forever
And I swear that I'll be there come what may
When the night is dark and stormy
You won't have to reach out for me
I will come to you
Oh, I will come to you
We all need somebody we can turn to
Someone who'll always understand
So if you feel that your soul is dyin'
And you need the strength to keep tryin'
I'll reach out and take your hand


repeat chorus.


I Will Be Your Friend

Verse 1


When every moment gets too hard
And though the road can feel so far
No matter how much time we're apart
I'm always near you
I'll be the shelter in your rain
Help you to find your smile again
I'll make you laugh at a broken heart
Wherever you are


CHORUS


'Cause I'm never gonna walk away
If the walls come down someday
All alone and you feel afraid
I'll be there when you call my name
You can always depend on me
I believe
Until forever ends
I will be your friend


Verse 2


So many people come and go
Nothing can change the "you" I know
You'll never be just a face in the crowd
And time will show
Through the seasons and the years
I will always hold you dear
Never you fear


CHORUS


Verse 3


I'll be around when every candle burns down low
And I want you, I want you to know...


CHORUS


I will be your friend
I will be your friend


I Will Remember You

(Chorus)
I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories


I'm so tired
But I can't sleep
Standing on the edge
of something much too deep
Funny how I feel so much
But cannot say a word
We are screaming inside
Oh...but we can't be heard


Chorus


So afraid to love you
More afraid to lose
Clinging to a past
that doesn't let me choose
But once there was a darkness
A deep and endless night
Gave me everything you had
Oh...you gave me light


Chorus


Chorus


IN MY LIFE

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some for ever, not for better
And some have gone, and some remained


All these places had there moments
With lovers and friends that I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I loved them all


But of all these friends and lovers
Still no one, compares with you
And these memories loose their meaning,
When I think of love as something new


No I will never, ever loose affection
For people and things that went before
I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I loved you more


I know I'll never ever loose affection
For people and things that went before
I'll often stop to think about them
In my life, I loved you more


In my life, I loved you more


Kryptonite

I took a walk around the world to
ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
in the sands of time
I watched the world float to the dark
side of the moon
I feel there's nothing I can do, yeah


I watched the world float to the
dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something
to do with you
I really don't mind what happens now and then
As long as you'll be my friend at the end


If I go crazy then will you still
call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
there holdin' my hand
I'll keep you by my side with
my superhuman might
Kryptonite


[You called me strong, you called me weak ]
but still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back
on solid ground


If I go crazy then will you still
call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
there holdin' my hand
I'll keep you by my side with
my superhuman might
Kryptonite


If I go crazy then will you still
call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
there holdin' my hand
I'll keep you by my side with
my superhuman might
Kryptonite


Yeah!


If I go crazy then will you still
call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
there holdin' my hand
I'll keep you by my side with
my superhuman might
Kryptonite


(Ooohhh oohhh oohhh x3)

Lean On Me

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road I'll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on
Lean on me...
